Following the birth of a child, it’s common to hear women talk about trying to lose the “baby weight” and get their bodies back into shape. What many women don’t talk about are problems that can develop as a result of giving birth, such as incontinence, bladder issues and pelvic pain. These and other problems are referred to as pelvic floor disorders, or PFDs, and may affect more than 28 million women in the United States.
Read more about PFDs at this recent blog post Help is Available for Pelvic Floor Disorders at Patch.com.
The public is also invited to join a team of Scripps specialists to learn about treatments available for pelvic floor disorders at a free presentation on Monday, November 11 at 6 p.m. at the Schaetzel Center on the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus. Please call 1-800-SCRIPPS (727-4777) to register or for more information.
